We have limited the number of group visits to seven a year. Groups 0f 10-15 people are welcome to come for short visits of 3 or 4 days. Groups will be led by full-time members of the Common Friars as well as several support community members. There will be four primary areas of focus and work for visiting groups; each day has a different focus. The four areas are:
discipleship in today’s world
Appalachia and economics
We are asking each person who comes with a group to raise at least $200 support for their time at the farm.
This covers all expenses as well as makes an investment in what the Common Friars are doing. We are interested in creating a long-term relationship with groups and for this reason are asking for a financial commitment on your part as we wish to make a time commitment to you. That is, we want to be available to you both before and after your mission trips to help guide your group in continued learning and growing. Our desire is, after all, that not only you have an excellent experience at the Good Earth Farm but that each person goes away inspired in some way to make a difference in their own communities.
Call, write, or email the Common Friars to discuss a visit.
